Dear Kiran, It is absolutely necessary to have a good command over the language to communicate your imagination exactly. You should have a good bank of synonyms and antonyms beside good vocabulary back up. You also need to read good articles,news regularly. It is only then your brain gets trained to use exactly the words,phrases effectively and impressively.

Hello Kiran, Isn't it obvious that Creative Writing can be in any language and not necessarily English? If it's not English, then you should only be creative enough and the translation part can be taken care by someone else. If it's English, according to me, to be creative you don't need to have outstanding written skills, but you just need to be good enough. Sometimes, simple English can make an article awesome. Just know who your target audience is/are and prepare yourself accordingly. Practice can always help in improving yourself. Thanks!

If you choose English to be the medium for your creative writing then yes, you should have a good hold on it, the reason is your content may be great but for an interested reader the language will push away if the grammar and the usage of words is not correct

Hi Kiran, Based on my experiences, I can tell you that creativity does not completely depend on your grasp of one particular language. Having studied with students from all over the world, I can assure you that a creative mind does find a way to express. If you want to share, you can send me a sample of your writing and we can take it from there. Maybe I will be able to guide you better into a creative frame of mind? Hope it was helpful.
